Dateline Features SIEVX Tonight: 8:30pm SBS
- You'd think the Maritime Commander of the Royal Australian Navy, Rear-Admiral Geoffrey Smith, would have stopped writing letters on SIEV-X.
After all, it was his letter to the Canberra Times repeating his false evidence to the unthrown children inquiry that he'd not heard of SIEV-X until after it sank that alerted Coastwatch chief Rear Admiral Marcus Bonser to Smith's problem...
- Dateline's Geoff Parish was one of the first journalists to take on the SIEVX story back in late May.
From what we've seen of the shorts, tonight's follow-up program includes some coverage of the CMI Inquiry and interviews with survivors. Hopefully it will bring the issue to a wider audience - don't miss it!
